According to J.D. Power, creating an outstanding experience over the entire customer life cycle is a very significant component to long-term success, and Palo Alto Networks has demonstrated its commitment to delivering an outstanding customer and partner support experience according to the rigorous standards of the Certified Assisted Technical Support ProgramSM.

Jointly developed by J.D.

Power's extensive technology industry benchmark customer satisfaction research, and must also pass a detailed audit of its support policies and procedures. The certification is valid for one year.
